UWOFA celebrates students' academic achievements

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, UWOFA's annual student scholarship reception, which is normally held in December, had to be cancelled this year. Instead, we put together a video ceremony to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the 38 recipients of the 2019-2020 UWOFA Scholarship. You can view the video and a full list of the recipients here.

Congratulations to all scholarship winners!

UWOFA awards 38 student scholarships

Thirty-eight undergraduate students received a UWOFA Scholarship in December. Awarded annually since 1971, the scholarships are supported through UWOFA members’ union dues and recognize students’ academic achievements from the previous year.

The UWOFA office will be closed for the holidays from December 23 to January 3. Staff will return to work on January 4, 2021. Happy holidays from UWOFA.
